Senator Al Franken has been accused of sexual misconduct by two women now, but he has 36 others defending him!
Three dozen women who worked with Franken during his days on ‘Saturday Night Live’ have signed a statement defending his character. They wrote:
"We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years. What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden [one of his accusers] and to the public. In our experience, we know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant ... Not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior."
The women are facing some heat for their statement. Their critics say that their positive experience with Franken has nothing to do with the sexual assault allegations.
